    Open footer.php and look for the following:
    <footer id="colophon" class="site-footer" role="contentinfo">...</footer>

    Inside this block put your custom text. It should look something like this:

    <footer id="colophon" class="site-footer" role="contentinfo">
    		<div class="site-info container">
    			<a href="<?php echo esc_url( __( '', 'sydney' ) ); ?>"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'sydney' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>
    			<span class="sep"> | </span>
    			<?php printf( __( 'Theme: %2$s by %1$s.', 'sydney' ), 'aThemes', '<a href="" rel="designer">Sydney</a>' ); ?>
    <div id="my-custom-info">
    Credential and other information go here...
    		</div><!-- .site-info -->
    	</footer><!-- #colophon -->

    Let me know if this helps.

    Hi Subrata,

    Excellent. It worked like a charm. Thanks a lot.

    Best regards.

    Hi Just came a small problem.

    The last sentence is not aligned properly

    Please see the screen shot

    The logomakr should be aligned to centre.

    Thanks for the help

    Hello there,

    Wrap your text with a DIV tag and center it with inline CSS. It should look like this:

    <div style="text-align:center;">

    Actually there was a step left out: do not edit the theme’s footer.php file. When an update to the theme happens you will lose all of your changes and you would not like that.

    Instead create and activate a child theme of Sydney.

    Once you have the child theme activated then copy the original footer.php into the wp-content/themes/sydney-child directory and then edit the copy instead.

    Thank you for pointing that out, Jan. We have a premade Sydney child theme you can use for starting point instead of creating a child theme from scratch.


    Dear Kharis and Jan – I used the same child them which you pointed.

    First downloaded the file added footer.php file into the child theme and uploaded the child theme.

    Every thing is great except the alignment.

    I would like the following in 3 lines:

    Logomakr (Link this to:

    with centre aligned.

    I appreciate if you can send me the code that i can add to the footer child theme.

    Thank you.

    In your footer credit, use this HTML code:

    <div style="text-align: center;">
      <div>First line</div>
      <div>Second line</div>
      <div>Third line</div>




    Dear Kharis,

    Thank you. Worked great with your new code.Please see the screen shot.

    It would be great if one can reduce the space between each line. Can you please send me code to adjust the space between each line.

    Great day.

    Dear Kesava,

    To reduce the spaces on each line, you’ll need to add this CSS code to override the default line height. Adjust the value if needed.

    .site-footer {
      line-height: 20px;  

    To apply to your site put it into Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS in your site dashboard.




    Thank you Kharis. It worked great.
    You guys are giving a great support.
    I am happy with 25px.

    Best regards,

    You’re most welcome here Kesava!
